3 new starts...........

I had to go to W*lm*rt yesterday for all of the items I can't get at my local family owned grocery store.  I got enough for a month.  I have only been over there one time (in May) since the shelter in place order so this was my June trip.  They didn't see me at all in April.  I used to go over there 2 or 3 times a week to walk 2500 steps and then pick up a few items.  Times change.

My neighbors on each side of me mowed their lawns so I felt obligated to mow mine.  I wasn't going to because we have only had an inch of rain in the last couple weeks and there were some brown areas but I didn't want to be the shaggy lawn in the middle.


So........I didn't look for any fabric for centers on the daisies but instead cut 3 more churn dash blocks.  I only found a center for one of them so far.

Those churn dash blocks are so fun! It is a lot of work to go grocery shopping especially when you buy so much more at one time. I having been doing the same thing so I limit my exposure. Hauling in, sanitizing, and putting away all those groceries is work!

My neighbors have mowed too so my grass is looking long just like you. I trimmed last night and that helped the overall look. I will mow tonight since we are forecasted to get rain tomorrow.

The blocks are so bright and cheerful. Your market management is a good one- I'm a "get in, get it, get out" kind of gal nowadays. No browsing.

I need to go to Wal-Mart today too and I don't take as much time as I used to for sure! Grass seems to be needing to be cut here already too I'm doing it at least once a week right now it is growing so fast always

We made our once a month trek to Costco this morning. The once a month to the grocery store will happen next week. Takes some planning but reduces our exposures greatly by not going more often.
